It's like an orange on a toothpick. They've got their own weather systems.

I know all my kids heads are big.

Big big. Off the charts big. "Well, that's a huge noggin", big.

We like big in this here house.

We have this problem.

Like, a lot.


And I's just wondering, if anyone, like maybe out there, with less big of heads,


had this problem with their kids' shirts, too.?. Just wonderin'.

Oh boy this makes me laugh! My family has really, really big heads (special-ordered-football-and-motorcyle-helmet big). I was at Burger King with a date once (ok, that's funny all by itself), and my date put a BK crown on my head. I kept readjusting it bigger and bigger until it fit, and he was really yukking it up. I defensively told him the crowns were made for kids and stuck it on his head to make my point.

It fell around his head to his shoulders.

Anyhoo, I didn't realize until I had my own kids (bless my hubby's dominant head gene) that getting most shirts stuck on your head wasn't normal for most people!

love the pictures! we have this problem in my house too! In fact my son {who's 2} got a hoodie sweatshirt for Christmas and I tried to put it on him and it got stuck...couldn't get it on or off...STUCK! I was finally able to get it off and had to cut a slit in the neck to help it fit!! ha

Those pictures are AWESOME!! I'm sure he loved you there, in his face, documenting his problematic situation. :)
We have the opposite problem. My kids' heads are too small! So much so that they've been tested and x-rayed and what not to make sure there skull hasn't fused together early! Carazy.

p.s. your subway art is so awesome! And so is that black door on the wall behind it. Yowza that is pretty!

We are another big head family. Truly, when my first daughter was born, the doctor came back in the room after measuring her head and said, "No turtlenecks for this baby!" Her sister was the same. To this day, it's really difficult for me to even buy a hat that isn't squeezing my big head. But, as I tell my girls, big heads are full of lots of brains! They just love that.

Dena stole my line. ha ha =)
I don't think they have particularly big noggins. I can think of a few bigger........better not to mention names.

P.S. Garrison and Jackson get those same shirts stuck on their heads everytime. I don't think they have particularly big heads. I could just be in denial though. LOL!

we have that problem with hoodie type shirts. I do notice that when they are younger like my 3 year old we have more trouble then when they are older maybe they can't make small childrens clothes to fit there heads and there small shoulders. I think its the clothes company not our children :)

I can imagine the scene with your child crying and screaming and you just taking pictures of him, and probably laughing....poor baby :)

I can't imagine that there is anyone who hasn't had that problem once or twice. I guess if it is happening all the time then..... you may have a "Big head problem".
They are all too cute to worry about big heads anyway.
Funny!

Renee said...
